Butyric Acid 90 Capsules

The fibre in whole foods, such as fruits and vegetables provides a natural substrate for the production of butyric acid, a short chain fatty acid produced by the normal bowel flora which is the end result of the bacterial breakdown of dietary fibre. Butyric acid feeds the epithelial mucosa cells lining the gut wall and is essential in maintaining the integrity of the gastrointestinal wall.
